As a teacher, you have the opportunity to influence a whole generation of thinkers. Will you help to create new leaders and decision-makers, or help a student forge their own path, whatever that may be? Or perhaps you'll channel your passion for sport, drama, language or science and teach others to do the same. Whether you're teaching children or adults, you'll be there for the 'aha' moments in the classroom. These moments are the evidence that you've ignited the spark for learning, and that you're making a real difference in your students' lives and communities.
